Red sites

Post by Button12 » Sun Sep 17, 2017 8:00 pm

Newbie question alert.

Have been doing as much homework on becoming a prison officer as possible. The annual report that grades prisons on a scale of 1-4 has a few prisons rated as 1.

Are these red sites? Seen mention on these forums that a few of them are calling out for applications as they're understaffed. Is there any chance of these prisons closing?

My googling has highlighted three of them that have previously been rumoured to be closing but nothing seems to have come of this.

Can only assume if they're aggressively recruiting then they wouldn't be thinking of closing surely?!

Sorry for the rambling!
